Rytidosperma dimidiatum (Vickery) Connor & Edgar

sensu H.P. Linder, Fl. Australia 44B: 65 (2002) p.p. (Victorian specimens only) APNI

Taxonomic status:Misapplication

Accepted name:Rytidosperma pilosum (R.Br.) Connor & Edgar


Victorian specimens referred to R. dimidiatum (Vickery) Connor & Edgar differ from genuine Tasmanian examples in having larger spikelets and lemmas with lateral lobes that taper evenly into the relatively long setae. They may constitute a distinct taxon, but presently are best placed within an already variable R. pilosum.
